Moving around all over the place as we have, we have accumulated friends (and a growing family) all over the place – which usually means to see them, we travel to visit them, or they travel to visit us.
My grandmother (in her 80’s) inspired me to start a visitors book, to record a snippet of each guests stay with us.
It’s very interesting when I go to visit her (in Queensland) and flick back to 20 or 30 years ago and remember what we got up too.
Initially I had a regular guest book like hers… but about 5 years ago, I decided to “juz” it up a bit.
I purchased a small photo book (from Kikki K), and a silver pen and now whenever people come to visit, I choose 2-3 photos that symbolise their stay and paste them into the book, and asks my guests to write a few words (and if I forget, I ask them to send me something via email, which I also paste into the book).
I really love it, its such a lovely reminder of all the wonderful things we have done with our guests (if only I could remember to do it everytime someone stays… have gotten out of the habit NOTE, if you come to stay with us, please ask to fill it in).
